Spring Soccer Registration Information
January 16, 2016
Before we get to spring I would like to welcome our new BYSA President, Adam Jodrey, and BYSA Vice-President, Jennifer Dick. They were elected to BYSA board at the January meeting. Both Adam and Jennifer are passionate to the game of soccer and the Bethel community. BYSA thanks former President, Jeff Polvado for his year of service and wish him the best as he has been transferred out of the area by work. BYSA also appreciates all the work Mandy Moorhead has put forth as VP and U6 coordinator over the past 3 years. Mandy will still be around and active as a BYSA member at large.
Spring Soccer Registration is now Open! If you are coaching for spring please get in touch with your players/parents from fall and pass the word on!
Registration will run from Today through February 24th by Midnight!
Register online or download a Spring Registration Form to mail or drop off at the in-person registrations. PAYMENT IS DUE AT TIME OF REGISTRATION!!! BYSA will not accept a registration form that does not include the spring payment along with it. Save the form until payment can be made. If there is a hardship scenario please have that Parent reach out to District Rep Ryan Wardlow so arrangements can be discussed. No player will be added to a roster that has not paid, this is non-negotiable. This spring U6-U14 will only accept individual registrations. Team registrations will be for High School teams only!
High School Coaches, if you would like to fill out a TEAM registration form you may do so, but the same rule applies, it will not be accepted without FULL payment! High School players that signup individually will be placed on a team by the District Rep. BYSA anticipates having four HS teams again this spring season.

$65 - 1 Child
$110 - 2 Children

Champions and the Off Season
BYSA has completed another successful Fall Soccer campaign crowning three regular season champions (BU14-Bullets, GU10-Panthers, BU8-Haney) and two tournament champions (BU14-Bullets, GU10-Panthers). BYSA also had the BU8 Bethel Flash that finished in second place in the regular season despite being undefeated (8-0-2). BYSA would like to thank all of our hard working coaches and volunteers. It can't be done without all of your time and dedication.
A big thanks to all the Board Members who worked from dawn to dusk while hosting the U6, GU10, and BU14 tournaments. Concession Manager, Michelle Randolph, spent a majority of two weekends manning the concession stand setting a BYSA tournament concession sales record. A big part of this was selling fresh grilled burgers and hot dogs. Thank you to our grill masters that flipped burgers for two weekends.
The nets have taken been down, trashed removed, benches collected, and concession stand cleaned. Again, thank you to all of you behind the scenes that helped winterize the fields. The next order of business will be the November board meeting at the Legion at 7pm on Thursday, November 10th. Nominations for 2017 Board Members will take place at this meeting, with elections in January.
Bethel Bullets: BU14 Regular Season and Tournament Champs
Bethel Panthers: GU10 Regular Season and Tournament Champs
Bethel Komoda Dragons: BU9 Tournament Runners-up
Bethel (Haney): BU8 Regular Season Champs and Tournament Runners-up

Concussion Training Mandated by State Law for ALL COACHES AND REFEREES
A new Ohio law mandates that all coaches, assistant coaches, and referees to obtain specialized training in recognizing the symptoms of concussions and head injuries every three years. Click here for a summary of the requirements for coaches and umpires.
BYSA requires every coach, assistant coach, and referee to successfuly complete the free online concussion training prior the first game. The training will take less than 30 minutes and will require that you print a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the video.
Heads Up: Concussion in Youth Sports is a free, online course available to coaches, parents, and others helping to keep athletes safe from concussion. It features interviews with leading experts, dynamic graphics and interactive exercises, and compelling storytelling to help you recognize a concussion and know how to respond if you think that your athlete might have a concussion. Once you complete the training and quiz, you must print out the certificate, and provide a copy to BYSA.
